This European Standard specifies test methods for the verification of the requirements relating to the protection from strangulation. This European Standard applies to all internal blinds as specified in EN 13120, insect screens as specified in EN 13561 and to blinds in sealed glazed units. These products can be operated manually, with or without compensating springs, or by means of electric motors (power operated products). Although at the time this standard has been published, no product standard exists for draperies, test methods specified in the present standard may be used for such products. The committee responsible for this standard is NA 005-09-01 AA "Türen, Tore, Fenster, Abschlüsse, Baubeschläge und Vorhangfassaden (SpA zu CEN/TC 33 und ISO/TC 162) " ("Doors, windows, shutters, building hardware and curtain walling (national mirror committee for CEN/TC 33 and ISO/TC 162)") at DIN.
